Per a Nov. 19 news release, The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) supports the CDC recommendation that anyone 18 and older receive a booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine at least six months after having received their second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech (Pfizer) or Moderna vaccine. All adults are now eligible to receive booster doses, and booster doses are strongly recommended for everyone 50 and older, who are at the greatest risk for severe disease.
See the Wisconsin Department of Health Services website for more information.
The Marquette University Medical Clinic is not distributing COVID-19 booster shots. Those interested in receiving a COVID-19 booster shot can register online to schedule their booster shot at a local health department, pharmacy or other location.
Individuals who do receive a COVID-19 booster dose are encouraged to update their immunization record with the date of the booster dose and upload a copy of their updated vaccination card here: www.mymedicalclinic.mu.edu.
The Marquette University Medical Clinic continues to focus on distributing the primary COVID-19 vaccine series and seasonal flu vaccination. Injectable influenza vaccinations are available by appointment at the Medical Clinic, while supplies last. The campus community is urged to receive the vaccination, not only as a way to stay healthy during the flu season, but to help alleviate the burden on health care providers in light of COVID-19.
